and talk about how genius it is. it's like, you know, it's just -- it's a cliche on top of a cliche crowned with a cliche. i mean, what am i supposed to say? where should i begin? bipartisanship, okay. the book it's based on, doris kearns goodwin's "team of rivals." >> i know what you think of that book. people point out the parallels between president clinton and our current president. here is a question. what lesson would you like the current president to take from the true lincoln in your view? >> well, look, lincoln did a lot more of the success in abolishing slavery if we're going to talk about the great triumph of the lincoln years, winning the civil war, abolishing slavery, 90% of that was idealism, not compromise. the movie shows us the compromise. i'm from kansas. we fought a war with missouri over slavery, but it was against compromise, that border war. this had been going on for decades and decades. if you ask me, barack obama's great failures are his zeal to compromise. he's always looking for a grand bargain. this is why he wasn't able to defeat conservatives when they were tot
or awesome you are fined and that money goes charity. we don't deal in cliches here. fiscal cliff for the lake superior university, no more fiscal cliff. kick the can down the road. double down, job creators, yolo, i don't know what that is, spoil alert. super food, guru. any of those? >> fiscal cliff, it was not the phrase it was the phrase worked. >> bill: you use it 87,000 times? >> the process went on for 87,000 years. i don't know canadian university wants to ban these words. kick the can down the road. that actually works. >> bill: i never said it. kick the can down the road budget problems, pinheaded debates, armageddon. >> the word that drove me crazy, caution. [ laughter ] >> i hear it every day. every day from this guy. calls, when i hear i go nuts. there is guy going like this. >> bill: you realize that gut field is making his last appearance. what is boneless wings. >> that is chicken wings without the bone. it's now on menus. it's disgusting. yolo is you only live once. that an internet thing. >> for a lot of people that is once too many. >> bill: what is yolo? >> the
. they were not about the self-proclaimed, self fulfilling cliche of the gun lobby's power. it was not the nra is so powerful. he paid tribute to the power of the american people to influence congress to say yes to some things that even congress is not inclined to say yes to. the only way we can change is if the american people demand it. and that doesn't mean from just certain parts of the country. we're going to need voices in those areas and those congressional districts where the tradition of gun ownership is strong to speak up. this will not happen unless the american people demand it. if parents and teachers, police officers and pastors, if hunters and sportsman if every american stands up and says enough, we suffered too much pain and care too much about our children to allow this to continue, then change will come. you know, in the letter that julia wrote me, she said i know that laws have to be passed by congress. but i beg you to try very hardly. julie, i will try very hard. but she's right. the most important changes we can make depend on congressional action. they need to bring the
that he could find, people to use the cliche who think out of the box. he married them up, if you will, wedded them, molded them into the information era high technology whiz people who knew how to leverage the information age to his electoral advantage. now that's what they want to do with this organize for action. and frankly, i wouldn't bet against them. this could be very, very effective as he tries to get his agenda going and maintain it. but make no mistake, we are dealing here and the country is dealing with and the republicans are dealing with a somewhat different barack obama. you could feel it today. it's been coming for some days, i think, that in the first term he was yes, sometimes timid, trying to be conciliatory. now in the way he has turned today and said give me a moment, i want to take in this view again, because i'll never see this again, he now sees this four years is going to decide what history says about what he did as president. he is already a historical figure, the first person of color to become a president and then be reelected as president, obviously. but n
the mindless cliche. this really puts it all in perspective. but, obviously, no one gains any perspective because they're right back to their same view of sports immediately thereafter. i said, if we're really looking for perspective, a bit of it can be found. and i was trying to imply there that an aspect of this, a bit of perspective on a larger and more complex problem can be found in what whitlock said. >> but the way it was read was, okay, you're quoting someone else and you're kind of making a plea for gun control, but not in your own name and you only had 90 seconds. looking back, you had a lot of time to think about this. was it a bit of a busted play? could you have handled it better? >> i could have handled it better and i think given the amount of time that i had, i would have been better off just crafting my own short statement and kind of realizing that it could not have been as complete as what i wanted it to be. there's also, a little bit of inside baseball or football inside this case, too. but i tried three times to contact jason whitlock. there are any number of witnesse
these kind of incidents happen, it's very chaotic. there's a great fog of war to use a cliche. but what you have at least on capitol hill is a group of critics of secretary clinton trying to get very very black and white answers for a situation that is far from black and white. it's very mirky. my own feeling is that nothing new came out from that hearing. but what the constant attacks on hillary clinton from republicans tells me that republicans see her as a threat, political threat in 2016 and they are trying to bang up her image as much as they can going into that. and i'm sure that the clip of hillary clinton saying what difference does it make where she gets angry at one of the republican senators will probably become part of a political ad. >> there's much to ask you. i'm trying to get to the bulk of this. secretary clinton said the state department is in the process of putting out or implementing 29 recommendations to make sure this kind of thing doesn't happen again. is there a way to protect people who take on jobs like this in foreign countries especially the middle east? >> at th
president and stupid women and the cliches that these are like out of something in the 1920s. where do they get this stuff from? >> this is all part of planet republican. i mean, they're not viewing the demographics right. they're not viewing the policies right, and their tone, they're tone deaf again and again. >> what are they up to? are they playing to the base maliciously? >> i think they're watching fox tv too much. >> who do they think they are winning with? >> rand paul won this race in kentucky by playing to the tea party base. that's how he got -- >> in a nonpresidential year. the trouble is two years from now we're looking to a nonpresidential year, and it could just be what they're up to here is just riling up their base because they know that's who shows up at the polls, and the middle of the road voter who has had other things to think about isn't paying attention. >> it's going back to clinton bashing -- >> one last question. joy, didn't you think that the poison in the anti-hillary thing from the right that went on for all those years was gone? weren't you surprised by t
about this bill? kit get through? >> reporter: well, there's sort of two cliche things from capitol hill today, toure. number one, renewed optimism around the legislation. you heard senator menendez say it right before the program he's never been this confident before because there seems to be a bipartisan consensus moving forward. they view it as the right thing to do and republicans realizing that in order to survive as a party they have to do it because latinos are the fastest growing voter bloc but the devil is in the details and usually the detail that is derail these types of large-scale bills. in 2007 president bush wanted to try to make this a reality. it could not get through republicans in the senate and the dream act in 2010. harry reid not able to hold the democratic caucus in that lame duck session because some folks on the moderate part of the democratic caucus were worried about how that vote would look. this time around the ideas of someone as conservative as marco rubio on board and man as liberal dick durbin on board, this has to be the time t
he did that well in school himself. this is a segment we call the botched cliche of the day senator edition. >> well, first off, we're not -- i'm not setting the bar like the kids have to become rocket surgeons. >> rocket surgeons. is that like tree surgeons? >>> next, let's take a look at this headline from the washington times. quote, reagan's home could become a parking lot for obama's library. we're looking at what you might call an extreme case of jumping the gun. this is an apartment building in the chicago neighborhood of hyde park where president reagan spent a bit of his childhood. the site is owned by the university of chicago and they're planning to tear it down to provide parking space for the expanding campus. cue the right wing. since the university of chicago could eventually be the site of barack obama's presidential library, isn't it possible that the parking lot might be for people who might want to visit the library which could destroy the place where ronald reagan spent less than a year of his youth? just think of the desecration. >>> a right wing explosion in su
understand when people say one time you watch it, and you can't stop watching. i know it sounds cliche, but they did look incredibly shocked on the they were all excited just to be there. first time ever at the screen actors dwu s guild, most of the. >> it's nice to see people in hollywood genuinely happy. >> he says with sarcasm. >> no, i mean it. no cynicism on "early start." you should know that. >> show me the surprise face again. >> so much good tv and movies. is it always like this? i feel so much good stuff, my productivity has gone down considerably. >>> breaking news overnight. chris brown got into an all-out brawl with another singer and his people. details, next. a kite, a breeze, a dunk of grilled cheese. catches and throws, and spaghettio's. that's what happy kids are made of. campbell's. it's amazing what soup can do. two. three. my credit card rewards are easy to remember with the bankamericard cash rewards credit card. earn 1% cash back everywhere, every time. [ both ] 2% back on groceries. [ all ] 3% on gas. no hoops to jump through. i earn more cash back on the things
and keeping their powder dry if i can cram some cliches in there. it's unusual to do an interview when you're awaiting confirmation. you're supposed to do an immediate blackout. he chose his hometown newspaper to do it. while do we care about this as a political story, will he be confirmed or not? everybody thinks in the end he will be. senator schumer is key here. a democratic nominee who doesn't have a scandal or personal scandal, all about policy, very rare to beat somebody just on policy, particularly if it stays an inside game. are there people in washington, in elite circles who want to stop hagel? absolutely. is the public engage on this? no way, not now. the challenge for the people who oppose is to do one of two things, either get the public engaged and say we want to stop chuck hagel, unlikely or pick off a prominent democratic senator who says i can't support this person. schumer is the key. if schumer supports hagel, almost impossible to stop him. >> i have to say, not to -- i feel like this is all - all -- especially the extreme opposition here, it's kind of a waste of time. t
. if that pipeline is built, it means a huge new source of emissions out into the foreseeable future. the cliche about second presidential terms, one which i think a good deal of truth to it, is that in the second term a president's attention turns to leaving a legacy. and i am almost certain that 50 or 100 years from now the only issue that will really matter to people is what we did about the climate. right now i'm joined by phaedra ellis-lamkin, green for all. paul bledsoe, clinton white house climate change task force. francis beinecke, president of national resources defense council and ta-nehisi coates. good morning. >> good morning. >> i was surprised about that speech. were you? >> surprised and excited. we were hoping to get the president's commitment. he made it very strongly. this was not a one line or two words climate change. eight sentences, policy, commitment. >> you're counting the sentences there, that's -- >> we're no longer counting the words. that's progress. counting the words for four years, now we're onto -- i think it was a very bold commitment on his part. if you were th
the border is secure. that is very, very important. and the devil is, to use a cliche, in the details there. also goes for how they detyfine path to citizenship. >> jessica, you're getting some new information about the white house, the president is planning to propose, maybe as early as tomorrow, when he's in las vegas. >> the difference between the president's plan and what the senate has proposed is the path to citizenship for the 11 million immigrants who are here illegally. the senate plan, as you've explained, would require essentially officials verify that the u.s. border is secure before any of the immigrants, these immigrants can begin signing up for citizenship. the president's proposal would include no similar border security trigger, if you will. now, to help the president press his case, beginning next week, a grassroots coalition that the white house has actually been working with for months dating back to the president's -- the type the president was campaigning for re-election. the coalition will begin a campaign next week that's called bibles, badges and business. it's a gr
're across the street from here is -- it is almost cliche, but it is amazing. there is one building that is completely destroyed. another building that is damaged, but not destroyed at all. and just on the other side of that, completely destroyed another building. this tornado came through here and just was very selective, but completely devastating in the targets it found. >> it is almost like it sounds like that zigzag we hear so often when we talk about tornadoes. miguel, thank you so much. george, let me bring you in. i hope you have a monitor. have you seen pictures of this, this tornado we have been showing out of adairsville, georgia? >> well, i've seen a few clips from the adairsville tornado and it looks like something that i would be used to seeing in kansas, in may. so it is very ahtypical for thi time of year. but we occasionally get deep south tornado outbreaks in late january, february. they tend to be fast moving storms and therefore quite dangerous. but they do happen. and people that live in that part of the country really do need to watch it pretty much year round.
alabama, wind, rain and more misery. what you're looking at there is a building that's almost cliche to say but that building was perfectly fine. the one next to where we're standing was a rental, apparently nobody was in there so nobody injured or killed here, but it is always amazing to see these things, how it skips from one and misses another. >> miguel marquez for us this morning. it is always amazing how a swath is just shredded and then homes stand right nearby. thanks, miguel. appreciate the update. let's get right to our meteorologist, indra petersons. let's look at the forecast, is it moving out? >> for the most part it's just left in the northeast. the story today really isn't about that severe line of storms but rather all that cold air behind it that was the troublemaker in the first place. i want to give you an idea how strange this weather was in the first place. monday, 48 degrees. look at chicago, 48 degrees. by tuesday it got up to 63. yesterday severe weather, 44 degrees. currently now down to 17 with a chance of snow showers in the forecast. so, yes, very wacky we
, on the positives. it's a huge cliche to say this, but really happiness resides inside of us, not outside of us. >> here with more on the pursuit of happiness is gretchen ruben, best selling memoir, "happy at home." happy new year. >> happy new year. >> why is it so elusive, happiness? >> it's something we strive for and if we don't get the things we want, it doesn't make us happy, which we expect. things like anxiety, remorse, guilt, fear. these things are big flashing signals we need to change something in our lives. even negative emowings have an important role to play in a happy life. >> when people define happiness, they tend to define it in terms of a perfect life and it can never happen? >> exactly. i think it's helpful to be happier, not achieve some myth iccal goefl a happy life or achieving perfect happiness but thinking today, next week, next month, what can i do to be happier? >> one of the ladies in the piece, one of the women in the piece said sometimes you have to stop and think about what you do have, not what you don't have. i've been through difficult times in my life and ofte
cliche, but i was seeing a lot of it. and in our game, you know, and you've been around me long enough to know, i want our guys to care about each other fiercely. that's why the '04 team worked so well. we didn't have a ton of rules. but when the game started, they knew what they were doing and they cared about each other. and i saw stuff that i didn't think gave saw stuff that i did think gave us their best chance to win and i wanted to tell them that. and i walked back to my office, and said, they didn't grasp it, they didn't listen. they were just wondering why i had a meeting. >> this book calls mike barnicle a boston multi-media personality. that's questionable. >> we had to give him some liberty. >> so there are great baseball fans all over the country, but boston is special. red sox nation is different. what are the fans like? what is the pressure like for a manager in boston that's not like any place else? >> if you like baseball, it's an unbelievable place to work. there's passion, there's interest. along with that comes a headache every once in a while. because there's no lit
of the most overused played out, annoying cliche phrases in the history of words. a list has been reloosed by lake superior state university of phrases from 2012 that should be banned from the english language. fiscal cliff, good luck on that. spoiler alert. bucket list, trending. and yolo, the acrow number meaning -- i never heard that. >> steve: my kids say that all the time. >> brian: what does it mean? >> steve: you only live once. yolo. >> brian: really? ban ago phrase i never heard. >> steve: 12 minutes after the top of the hour on this tuesday. coming up, the fiscal cliff, i know we're -- we're supposed to stop using the word. not only the only word on americans' minds, today more. today we'll meet a guy who says he may have to lay off workers because of the obama taxes. >> brian: will lawmakers say more money in their paychecks? i heard this deal kills that raise 9d ad [ male announcer ] coughequence™ #8. waking the baby.

right, and i think that falls in the phase zero. you have to have skip in the game, i know it's a cliche, but if you're not there present, then the asians question extraordinarily why you're going to come in when the stakes get much higher, and they don't even need to think out to the existential question of soviet -- chinese icbms just hoping for the good old days hoping things were much clearer, chinese icbms raining down on them and does the nuclear umbrella still hold? as you point out, we've already been doing offshore balancing even while being present because we've had the filipinos, the japanese come to us in these territorial disputes and say are you backing us up, and what are you doing? the administration's response has been we take no position on sovereignty issues, we want to see the status quo maintained, but it's up to you to solve it. now i think, ironically, the right position. it's not for us to defend ya pap's territory, but it is for us to understand how the balance of power in the region is changing, and by not reacting we are changing the actions of our allies. and
